The following quote posted to his blog by our good friend Caleb Wilde pretty much “dittos” my feeling on this story, “This is easily the most disturbing death related news item that I’ve ever posted on my blog. ” 
Egypt parliament is considering two disturbing laws: one that would legalize the marriage of girls starting from the age of 14 and the other that permits a husband to have sex with his dead wife within the six hours following her death.

This bill originates out of the teachings of a Moroccan cleric named Zamzami Abdul Bari.  The cleric believes that the marriage commitment remains valid after death.  Based on that assumption, he believes that a man, and a woman, should have the right to have sex with the corpse of their spouse.  He calls this “Farewell Intercourse”.
Egypt’s National Council for Women (NCW) has appealed to the Islamist-dominated parliament not to approve two controversial laws on the minimum age of marriage and allowing a husband to have sex with his dead wife within six hours of her death according to a report in an Egyptian newspaper.
The controversy about a husband having sex with his dead wife came about after a Moroccan cleric spoke about the issue in May 2011.

Zamzami Abdul Bari said that marriage remains valid even after death adding that a woman also too had the same right to engage in sex with her dead husband.

This is a real issue. You can read more about it here.
